    With its recent flagship smartphone, Oppo is stepping into the North American and European markets. The device comes with an innovative design with a high screen-to-body ratio of 93.8%. Being a truly bezel-less smartphone, it will be a direct rival to the Vivo NEX.

    Design

    The smartphone looks premium with a 3D curved glass build at its front and rear, which is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. As rumored earlier, the device comes with a sliding design and the front and rear cameras will slide out once the camera app is opened. The slider mechanism has helped the smartphone achieve the truly bezel-less design. It is touted that the motorized mechanism can open or close in just half a second.

    The smartphone does not have a fingerprint sensor (neither a physical one nor an in-display fingerprint sensor). Instead, there is a set of sensors for Face Unlock but it isn't the hardware-level facial recognition technology as Apple iPhone X's Face ID.

    Oppo Find X specifications

    Besides the design, the Oppo Find X adorns a 6.4-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. At its heart, the device makes use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC teamed up with 256GB/512GB of internal storage and 8GB RAM.

    There is a dual-camera module at the rear with a 16MP primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and a 20MP secondary sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The camera has AI capabilities such as portrait mode and screen recognition. Also, there is support to add AR stickers to the photos. The selfie camera is a 25MP sensor with AI beautification and 3D emojis as in the iPhone X.

    The Find X employs a 3730mAh battery with Super VOOC charging technology. It is touted that this new fast charging technology can charge the device from 0% to 100% in just 35 minutes. The other goodies of the Oppo smartphone include dual SIM card slots, global LTE bands support, and a USB Type-C port. The smartphone misses out on a 3.5mm audio jack but that isn't surprising. The Find X is fueled by Android 8.1 Oreo topped with Color OS 5.1.

    Pricing and availability

    The Find X has been launched in Glacier Blue and Bordeaux Red color variants with a nice gradient finish on the edges. The base variant with 256GB storage is priced at 999 euros (approx. Rs. 79,000). The Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition with 512GB and Super VOOC flash charging is priced at 1699 euros (approx. Rs. 1,34,000).

    At this price point, the Oppo Find X competes against the likes of the high-end flagship smartphones from Samsung, Apple, and LG. It is expensive than the Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy Note 8. But this pricing comes with the innovations brought in by the company.
